Screen Flickering on P1 gen 2

2020-05-08, 2:39 AM

My new P1 gen 2 arrived today, but the screen occasionally flickers during use. It does not occur all the time, only once ever couple of minutes. I have tried updating drivers, but not yet looking in the BIOS. Has anyone ad this issue before?

Having the exact same problem with my P1 gen2 that arrived on 5/5/2020. The screen flickers once in 2-3 minutes. Only the laptop screen flickers when I connect it to an external monitor (that uses NVIDIA quadro for display, laptop screen is connected to intel graphics card). This makes me think may be it is a hardware issue.Any help would be highly appreciated!

I am having the exact same issue.  Only mildly annoying, but this should not happen on a $2800 machine.

I’m also having the same issue. Got a replacement and still the same problem. What setup do you have? I’m running the Xeon quadro T2000 and the 500 nit 1080p display. Let me know if anything fixes it

I think this is solved. I took my computer in for warranty service at Office Depot, and was told that it is a hardware issue with the lcd cable. Still waiting for actual repair to occur.

This does not seem to be hardware issue. When I disable 'Intel UHD 630 graphics driver' and the laptop screen switches to 'Microsoft Basic Driver', the screen stops flickering. 

 

I got my replacement as well and the problem is still present with the new machine!!

I have the same setup.  As Safaat pointed out, disabling the Intel graphics driver and running only the NVIDIA graphics card seems to "fix" it.  Seems to be a bug in the hybrid graphics.  Probably reduces battery life but I don't really care as I am plugged in most of the time.  I had an issue when running external monitors on a Thunderbolt workstation doc where the external monitors would get super laggy when I closed the lid on the laptop, which disabling the Intel graphics seemed to fix as well.  Not exactly a fix, but seems to be a third party driver issue, not Lennovo.  Hopefully a future driver update will fix the issue but until then running the NVIDIA card as your dedicated graphics card seems to work.

Nevermind. Fixes the flickering but creates other (worse) issues. Now I am getting screen tears and laggy scrolling/selection. Ugh. Re-enabled the Intel driver but set the NVIDIA card as priority in the control panel. Guess I'll just have to deal with the flickering.
